The world will never see another peace conference like the one which took place in Paris in 1919. For six months, the world's major leaders - including Woodrow Wilson, president of the United States, David Lloyd George, prime minister of Great Britain, and Georges Clemenceau, prime minister of France - met to discuss the peace settlements which were to end World War One.

Best Audible Title Yet

Dr MacMillan has a great voice. I felt like she was speaking to me - not reading a script. Excellent articulation and enunciation. I am finding myself listening to this one again and again, from different start points. My friends at work are amazed by how much I now know about this important event in modern history. If Dr MacMillan comes up with another title - I'm buying it. Wish I'd had professors as interesting as her in university...

Highly recommended

I especially liked the small anecdotes Prof. MacMillan inserts in between the events. Her analysis of the personalities involved in the conference together with those anecdotes gives a human perspective to the decisions made in Paris in 1919.
